Chris is an award-winning reporter who started with KDKA in May of 2019. He is thrilled to tell your stories in his hometown!

Prior to coming back to Pittsburgh, Chris worked at WSET in Lynchburg, Virginia, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. While he was there, he covered major stories including the scandals that rocked Virginia politics, the chaos in Charlottesville that followed the “Unite the Right” rally, Virginia Tech’s 10th anniversary of the deadly mass shooting on campus, and several damaging storms, including a tornado that tore through 20-miles.

He was honored to cover stories nationally for the company.

Chris’ work was recognized by the Associated Press of the Virginias, naming him one of their reporters of the year.

Before living in Virginia, Chris worked at WPMT in the Harrisburg area and WCTI along the North Carolina Coast.

Chris was born and raised in the shadow of the Pittsburgh International Airport, in Crescent Township. After graduating from Moon Area High School, he moved downtown to attend Point Park University. While there he double majored in Broadcast Journalism and Television Production. He also interned at KDKA before graduating.

Chris is an avid Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins fan. He currently lives in Pittsburgh with his wife. They both enjoy running along the city’s trails.

If you see him out, (he’ll probably be wearing something with black and gold on it) stop and say hi!
